July 11, 2006, Espoo, Finland - With more than one million units sold since it entered the charts in March 2006, the Nokia 3250 music phone is quickly earning a reputation as a must-have summer accessory - storing up to 750 songs (1 GB) of high quality music and sporting a 2 megapixel camera in a unique design.

“As the world’s largest manufacturer of digital music players, Nokia continues to lead the way in making mobile music widely accessible,” says Heikki Norta, Senior Vice President of Nokia’s Lifestyle Products Group. “As we enter the summer holiday season, the Nokia 3250 is an ideal travel companion - it stores all your favourite songs, records fondest summer memories, and even has an off-line mode for those endless long-haul flights.”

From a technical standpoint, the Nokia 3250 music phone is based on S60 3rd Edition software and Symbian OS - which can turn a smartphone into a versatile portable music player capable of playing a wide array of digital music formats such as MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC and eAAC+. In addition to making it easy to load and transfer music, the S60 3rd Edition software allows people to purchase music and share their musical experiences and recommendations with their friends.

“S60 3rd Edition software introduces a new level of flexibility and security, enabling easy creation of devices and applications targeted to mass markets. The success of the Nokia 3250 clearly demonstrates that consumers value the extensibility that an S60 device offers,” adds Norta.

The Nokia 3250 music phone began shipping in March 2006, reaching the milestone of one million units sold in less than four months.
